Can I take MAN 327, MAN 327E or MAN 347P without having my minor declared?

No, restrictions for MAN 327, MAN 327E and MAN 347P are required for all students due to capacity limits. We currently have 900 students pursuing the Entrepreneurship Minor.  The only exceptions is for Management majors. You can attempt to add the class during the add/drop period. Restrictions will be removed during the add/drop period closer to when classes start. This means the seats will become available to all undergraduate students closer to the beginning of the semester. Please make an alternative plan in case you are not able to add your preferred class as seats are in high demand.

How can I get into other Entrepreneurship Minor classes?

You will need to meet the restrictions required by the department offering the course. We do not have access to add you to any class.

Make sure your entrepreneurship class number and title is on the approved Entrepreneurship Minor list.
